Hirohide Hamashima, the Tire development director is in praise for Adrian Sutil, he is the one to look for in rain, hoping Froce india would clinch some points this week end, this would bring back the glee in Mr. Mallya' s face !

Hamilton should just keep his mouth shut and concentrate on racing. He'll easily win. He's forgotten that Kimi Raikkonen doesn't need anyone else to crash out of races.

Here is a one question picked up from the Kimi Interview on The Official Formula 1 Website. Just shows what a racer Kimi is.. He rocks!!

Q: In Spa you drove for all or nothing. In hindsight, would you do it all over again or settle for securing some points?
KR: I wanted to win - or nothing. Unfortunately I got nothing that time, but at least I had more fun that at many races before. And what are sure points? I needed more points than the others, so realistically I was in a position where I didn’t have much to lose, so I went for it. Afterwards it is always easy to say that by playing safe I would have probably ended in second place, but that is not the right way to win. I want to win it on the circuit rather than after the race. What happened in Spa happened. Again, that’s racing.

Lewis Hamilton will be starting from 15th on the grid for the Italian Gp tommorow. He couldnt make it not because he crashed but becuase of the weather conditions. Heavy rains. OHh and also Raikkonen.

Qualy results: The Official Formula 1 Website

Should be an exciting race, starting grid has mixed up really well. Raikkonen and Hamilton can't stay off each other it seems

I just love this starting grid. All the contenders way down in the pack. Will make for a cracker of a race.

Vettel, man ! what a driving its just awesome. I feel very happy for him, I was expecting things from Adrian Sutil also.
During the Q2 did Adrian start before or after the heavy rain ?

Sutil didn't make it to Q2.

Vettel/STR were always good in wet conditions. In Fuji 07, Vettel was running in P3 (I think) before he crashed into Webber

This is a good oppurtunity for Massa to gather some precious points, and leave Hamilton gasping for a a point or two.

Thanks silent engine,
Sebastian Vettel is the youngest F1 race driver to grab a pole !! that sounds terrific
I don't remember about Fuji07 , but I do remember in Montreal, Canada were Vettel was ahead of Heikki.
I heard that Ron Dennis had contacted him for the contract in 08 but Red bull didn't budge to the things.

Yes, indeed. He is just 21. He was already the youngest to score a point, that too on his debut race last year. He might even win tomorrow if it continues to rain. He is definitely in the watch list of the top teams. Its only going to be good for him. Ferrari would be looking closely at him for 2011 season if they need to sign someone.

The FIA has issued a clarification as to what is a fair overtaking maneuver after gaining a place due to an illegal move (taking a short cut etc). Looks like this seals Hamilton's fate as Hamilton overtook Kimi almost immediately after letting his pass.

I don't think so because this clarification is made now in the light of Hamilton's move.
